“Innocence is lucky if it finds the same protection as guilt”
The results were surprising and inconsistent. For ‘Elvis Presley’, ‘John F Kennedy’ and ‘Joni Mitchell’, a Knowledge Graph appeared, with a picture of each person, as expected. For ‘Meredith Kercher’ herself, there is no Knowledge Graph. Neither is there a Graph for innocent Raffaele Sollecito or guilty Rudy Guede. Prosecutor Giuliano Mignini does have one, as does writer Candace Dempsey. Other commentators are not so lucky, Barbie Nadeau, John Follain and Frank Sfarzo each drawing a blank.
Yesterday Google’s Knowledge Graph for Amanda had been updated to show a picture of her that was lifted from the Seattle TImes. Her face was partially obscured by two microphones, she had a cold sore on her lip, but it was a picture of her. Today the Knowledge Graph shows no picture at all. Perhaps this is evidence of human intervention at Google, but who knows? Truly Google works in a mysterious way its wonders to perform.
